Please note that you must have the appropriate insurance for your chosen activity. As we will be travelling in the mountains, you must be covered for helicopter rescue, repatriation and medical costs. For further details, please ensure you have carefully read the Insurance section of our website.
The standard of accommodation is entirely up to you. If you are choosing to base your trip in a town such as Chamonix, France, then a huge range of accommodation is on offer from 5 star luxury spa hotels, such as the Hotel Mont Blanc to comfortable 2 star family run hotels. We can source whatever level of comfort you wish.
If you would like to include a true mountain experience and spend a night high in the mountains there are characterful 'refuges' perched in the most amazing remote locations. The accommodation in a refuge is basic, and more often than not the sleeping arrangements are dormitory style. An excellent 'bonding' experience! Some such as the fabulous Rifugio Bonatti, in Aosta Valley, in Italy offer a more comfortable experience with bedrooms available, hot showers, excellent food and good wines.
In winter the temperatures in the mountains can range from 8˚C on a sunny afternoon to minus 10˚C on a chilly morning. Temperatures in both the Alps and Scandinavia can drop to minus 20˚C and lower. In winter the weather can involve continuous snowfall, and strong winds so you should be prepared for cold, possibly wet weather. It can also be very sunny, and pleasantly warm.
If you wish to add on optional activities these can easily be arranged for you. In winter you could choose to experience a range of other winter sports. Depending on the location you are choosing for your trip these can include trying cross country skiing, dog sledding, ice climbing, glacier walking, or even sleigh rides. We can advise you on what is available in each location.
We feel strongly about protecting the environment and do not encourage the use of single-use plastic items. We would ask that you arrive with a ‘water bottle’ or ‘hydration system’ that can be used repeatedly. We would point out that we operate a ‘zero tolerance’ for rubbish, and would ask you to remove all your rubbish items from the mountain even those you consider to be bio-degradable. You can read our full policy here.
The date range given below indicates the months when the activity can be undertaken. The prices indicated are for a half day/evening or full day of snowshoeing.
Equipment Rental If you require snowshoe equipment we can provide this at a rate of £15 per person per day, or £10 per person for a half day which is 3 hrs. We also accept payment in Euros by prior arrangement.
The Complete Package We can also quote you an all inclusive price which can include accommodation, snowshoe equipment hire, the guides fees and expenses and all logistics. We can also add on other winter activities such as cross country skiing, husky dog sledding, etc.
Maximum Numbers To ensure that you make the most of your snowshoe experience we take a maximum of 8 people per guide. We can, of course, accommodate larger groups but for reasons of safety and enjoyment this would require an additional guide or guides depending on the group size.
